666: meanings and interpretations

Jun
24


I keep seeing people writing about their discussions regarding 666. In the text it is 600 + 60 + 6, not 6,6,6. If it were 6,6,6 - it would be written in Hebrew as vav,vav,vav. This is completely different and will lead you down an incorrect interpretation. The numbers 600, 60, and 6 could be written in Hebrew as:
Final Mem, Samekh, Vav (600,60,6)
Or
Tav, Resh, Samekh, Vav (400+200, 60,6)

Those are the most common forms. The underlying Hebrew/Aramaic that the text would have been originally written was not mistranslated, but reads correctly as six hundred sixty and six, not as six six six...

This is very important for those trying to understand this prophecy. If you misquote the text, you will fall to a misunderstanding. Indeed, I find people finding demonization around every corner from this error.

The Sages have said:

In the Code of Jewish Law1 it is written that a Torah scroll should be held in one's right arm (and rested on the right shoulder). This applies even if the one holding the Torah is left-handed. There are two verses that allude to this idea:1) "From His right hand was a fiery Law for them" -- Deuteronomy 33:2. The Torah was given from G‑d's right hand, as it were, and we therefore hold it in our right hand, too.2) "And His right hand will embrace me" -- Song of Songs 2:6. G‑d embraces us with His right hand, and we, in turn, embrace His holy Torah with our right hand.
